1939 was a tough year for many people. It was shortly before the second world war startet and therefore must never be forgotten. Hence, Madame Tussauds Vienna built a new area especially dedicated to the World War II to educate and remind people of history in a respectful way.
At the beginning of the area is the wax figure Winston Churchill in front of London, followed by Karl Renner, an Austrian politician, in Vienna. A typical red telephone box and feel boxes give interactive opportunities and great photo points.
Next up are Leopold Figl, another Austrian politician, Oskar Schindler and Anne Frank in a remake of her secret hiding place in Amsterdam.
Then you will see film director Quentin Tarantino and actor Brad Pitt in one of his best-known roles - as Aldo Raine in Inglourious Basterds. They transfer the issue of WWII into today's world and on to the screens.
In the end you can take a picture of you in front of a hand-painted mural on a brick wall. The mural shows two gigantic lilac wings - symbolizing peace.
